For the occasion of Children’s Day of Arts, KVS in collaboration with Bronks and La Montagne Magique presents Koper & Vel. This performance is part of the Export/Import Festival, an international theatre festival for all ages, presented at various Brussels locations between 11 and 15 November 2020.

Koper & Vel is an ode to the marching band in sound and imagery. Sometimes a festive invitation to dance, sometimes a solemn hymn or a note of comfort during a mourning procession. Marching band music carries us through the rituals of life – it is the sound of life itself. On stage we see two percussionists and seven brass players: nine musical virtuosos and character actors who broaden the concept of a marching band in every direction. They sound grotesque and absurd, solemn and sober, or lose themselves in strange dance steps. But they are always real: full of breath, sweat, and rhythms that make you want to move. 

Director/choreographer Randi De Vlieghe and the HOP FROG marching band from Borgerhout present a universal musical story for a broad audience, about man, his hubris, his cruelty, his gentleness, his vulnerability, his flexibility and his lust for life. A rousing theatre concert without words, which makes you want to quiet down and scream with pleasure all at once!
